Satellite, 2009-2013

A photographic ritual:

1. A floating structure built to hold
a fire above the water reflecting on the surface
pulled out to the middle of a small, circular lake
the fire and its reflection was photographed from the shore
one picture for every two degrees
180 pictures in all

2. Kodak Ektagraph slide projector
customized for 180 images
modified to rotate on the axis of the carousel
projector rotates two degrees for each slide
pushing its way around
projecting the circle of fire-reflection images
onto the walls of the space
turning the centre into the circumference
